Woah! When Did Charlotte Bronte Become Such a Bad Ass?

This was unexpected. Here’s the new trailer for Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre) Jane Eyre and it might just blow your mind a little. With these new takes on classic novels — like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies — it’s more interesting, and challening, to do what Fukunaga has done here: Take the same material and bring in a new vision, here that of Gothic Romance. Fukunaga has converted Jane Eyre — starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender — into a chilling horror-ish tale, and the trailer comes complete with the score from Suspiria.

It’s really interesting, and for the first time in my life, I find that I actually want to see a movie based on a novel by a Bronte sister.
